Horrorpunk Masters 'Cancerslug' Re-Press Entire Discography, Get Ready for US Tour

If you were a subscriber to The Monthly Music Wrap-Up podcast, you'll probably remember me playing some Cancerslug in October in lieu of the pretty awful new Misfits album. Their frontman, Alex Story, is spreading himself as far across the horrorpunk genre as possible; fronting not only Cancerslug, but his solo project Alex in Ash, and various other side projects that I can't find much info on. Oh yeah, and long-time Misfit's guitarist Doyle also made him the singer and lyricist for his horrorpunk super-group Gorgeous Frankenstein; and with good reason. In my mind, Cancerslug is keeping horrorpunk alive, while a Jerry Only-fronted Misfits and the slew of copycat bands are just cheesing it up more and more everyday.

But if you feel like you're behind on Cancerslug's impressive 12 album back-catalog, don't worry. They've just re-pressed every one of their previous albums and put them back up for sale in their store. If I may make a few suggestions; Book of Rats is one of my all-time favorite albums, The Beast with Two Backs is the first CS album I heard and always a classic, Tales of a Butcher is their most recent with many remakes of older songs, and the UnNameable EP is very well produced and probably one of their heaviest.

You can sample all the songs right on the site, or hit the jump to sample some of my favorites, as well as check out the dates for their upcoming US tour.
